Netflix Proves Americans Have Had Enough Wokeness
"Americans are smarter than they think. And this is one of the reasons why Netflix has struggled so much. Don't forget this was a stock that was flying high up around $600 a share back in January at the start of the year now. It's around 200 and a lot of this has to do with not just the challenges that our economy may be confronting in the near future. But the culture wars that are going on. And Netflix seems to be waking up here, learning that wokeism is not good for business. Not good at all. In fact, Netflix is now under enormous pressure. After it lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter, recognizing, of course, that you do not provide content people like if you go too far out on this liberal leftist nonsense that's actually offensive to some people, they're not going to watch their show. Your shows and they're not going to subscribe to your content and that becomes an issue then for the company, right? Because you think about the loss and subscribers, the content like Dave Chappelle, right? The employees are furious about Dave Chappelle. So Netflix just said, you know what? We don't care. This is the right move, by the way. This is the right move for the company. The country as well. Netflix just issued a long memo detailing that the company culture is sort of at stake and it wants to really help to improve upon it saying that it wants to produce lots of different content and it will not allow its employees to cut
Bezos Calls Out Biden President Over Inflation and Corporate Taxes
"You think about Jeff Bezos being much more sort of in step with the liberal left given that he owns and runs up well he owns Washington Post. Anyway, he's out there. He's stepping up his criticism of the Biden administration on Twitter. This is pretty good. He's going to new one out. I'm going to share with you, but what I loved was what he put out on Friday as we went into the weekend. This thing was epic. Epic. On Friday. Jeff Bezos called President Biden over a tweet in which Biden said that taxing wealthy corporations could actually help lower inflation. Okay, that's just wrong, right? It's just wrong because think about it for two seconds. If you tax corporations more, they still need to deliver to their shareholders, therefore they're just going to raise prices even more. So that actually really doesn't make any sense. He said, and I quote, you want to bring down inflation, let's make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share. This was on May 13th. And Bezos then retweeted it with some info of his own urging, well, sort of urging the disinformation board to review that one, right? He said quote, raising corporate taxes is fine to discuss. Taming inflation is critical discuss. Mushing them together is just misdirection. In other words, where's the government disinformation board that ministry of truth as we like to call it? Where are they when you need it? Oh, wait a second. They can't actually help in this case because you see the government itself. Is the source of the misinformation?
The American People See Right Through the Media's Treatment of Biden
"All right, I want to turn to this poll that just came out Americans, as I said, they get it. We get it. We've got a newly released poll that shows the American people really see through the media. And they see through how the media treats president Joe Biden. Effectively with kid gloves, right? Compared to how they treated former president Donald Trump, according to Rasmussen reports, the majority of Americans say, and I quote, the media does not question president Joe Biden as aggressively as they questioned former president Donald Trump. 54% of likely U.S. voters believe the news media are less aggressive in questioning Biden than they were Trump. Look, it's only 54% though. I mean, to me that to be like 95%, it is very clear that this media is quite biased. It's actually a big deal when they actually challenge him on things. Because they never seem to challenge him, and we've got all kinds of problems going on. In terms of our economy, in terms of the border, in terms of what we're going to continue to face with our economy. In terms of infant formula, that crisis that frankly, the administration should have been all over before it happened, or at least when it happened. Anyway, it seems that most Americans are wise to that. And it's important that we are, right? Because you have to be able to vote for the candidate that's going to offer the best opportunity in, well, November and also, again, in 2024, and if everyday Americans can see through the media as you know what, then I think that that's going to make a real
Florida Church Has Drag Queen Presentation
"Well, I think a lot of Americans are understanding that. The chaos that seems to be forming in this country in every arena of life is largely the product of the left. Why their children are being sexualized at such a young age. Where was this church oh yeah, maples Florida? Congregational church of Christ, I think it was. In Naples, Florida, a city I know pretty well. And the southwest coast of Florida had a an event scheduled an event for kids from about 12 to 16, where they would feature what do they call them again? Drag queens, yeah. They would feature drag queens and have other LGBTQ. Programs and teach them how to be political activists. This is a church. So this is an example of something that's happened in Judaism Protestantism and Catholicism. And that is the left destroying it.
Ask Officer Tatum: The Roe v. Wade Issue
"I want to get back to the question that Michelle asked about the roe V wade issue. Let me just say this. You know, I would love to do more research and figure it out because it's very confusing to some degree. But it's not that serious. I think that people should not, first of all, the politicians are talking about roe V wade because they want to make this a political issue so they can win in the midterms. They don't get can care less about you cohan and your babies are dying or whatever case may be. They don't care nothing about the promiscuity. They don't care nothing about your heartache and pain, nothing about the regret after you do it. Women feeling lonely and depressed and all of the things that come with having abortions, they could care less. They want you to vote. They can care less about the people at the border. They don't care about them getting killed on the way over here dying again left in the desert by coyotes getting raped and all of the above. They couldn't care less, okay? They just want your vote. Roe V wade, I do not understand how a rational woman could be arguing about this at this point. Our irrational man could be arguing. Many of these states giving you up to 16 weeks of some crazy. I mean, I think 16 weeks is even way too much. They give you plenty of time because to be honest, a lot of people are arguing, what if you get raped or whatever can be? Well, if you ask me, I'm pretty sure you know what happened to you at least it within 24 hours of you having to go and get something done about it. And so there's no mystery. It's not like you get raped and you don't know you got raped for until you're pregnant. I don't know if that happening. Anybody that's involved in the incest, a medical issue is a completely different story and they always try to push this issue. Let me just say this. I heard Steven Crowder cities before. And I think it was a beautiful response. He said, if you talk to people who claim to be so involved in caring about the people who are raped or incest or whatever, ask them, less eliminate all of those people and allow them to have as many abortions as they can or whatever the case may be. What about the 99%? Can you agree that all of that is wrong? All in the papa gasket. The brains pop out in a pass out and they cry and they spit and roll around on the ground all day. That's what they're going to do because they do not have a real solution to the problem. They do not have they are not acting in good
Phelim McAleer's Daring N.Y. Play Offers the Truth About Abortion
"Welcome back. I'm talking to my friend, the journalist. And mcelhenney is not with us right now. But the two of you have done money very important projects as journalists and artists right now in New York, you have this play gazelle play dot com. Where you're telling the truth about abortion. I mean, more than telling the truth, you're revealing one of the most horrific episodes in modern American history. You're daring to do it in Manhattan. And this is one of the things I just wanted to say, how vital this is, that you're daring to do this in Manhattan. I live my life as well in Manhattan on May 31st. We're doing something. It's the antithesis of incendiary or provocative. We're hosting Apollo 16 astronaut Charlie duke at an event. Anyone who is in New York, I invite you to go to Socrates in the city dot com and come to that event. But if you're New York this weekend, you owe it to yourself to see this play and you said it's gazelle play dot com and you call it verbatim theater. Yes. Which is all you're doing. Every word in that play was taken from a courtroom testimony are from the grand jury report every word. I'm not so and it's a great way of telling a story because you've got all these eyewitnesses telling from all these different points of view, but the one incident about the one series of incidents. And of course, in the courtroom, there's no political slogans. There's everything you say has to be backed up by evidence. So therefore, the truth tends to come out. You know, it's really, well, it's an extraordinary thing.
The FBI Is Spying on Parents: A Timeline
"29th, the school board association sends a letter to the Biden White House. 5 days later on October 4th, Merrick Garland issues this memorandum with a press release that lays out and puts a snitch line together to go after parents, then 16 days later, the FBI sends out the email that establishes this threat tag designation that was put on these parents. In 22 days. So I have this letter printed out here from Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson, who's the ranking member on the subcommittee on the constitution civil rights civil liberties, and it's addressed to the honorable Merrick Garland. He says in sworn testimony before this committee, you denied that the Department of Justice or its components were using counter terrorism statutes and resources to target parents at school board meetings. We now have evidence that contrary to your testimony, the FBI is labeled at least dozens of investigations into parents with a threat tag created by the FBI's counter terrorism division to assess and track investigations related to school boards. These cases, now listen closely, include investigations into parents upset about mask mandates. And state elected officials who publicly voiced opposition to vaccine mandates. These investigations into concerned parents are the direct result of and would not have occurred but for your directive to federal law enforcement to target these categories of people. These laying down the gauntlet, both of these representatives are. Laying down the gauntlet saying, this would not have happened, had you not directed the FBI to do so. So what is this testimony that they are referencing? To play cut one ten, this is Merrick Garland assuring Congress, under sworn testimony under oath that the Department of Justice was not using its resources to target concerned parents. Cut one ten. I can't imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children, nor can I imagine the circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism. So then why mister Garland, honorable mister Garland? Are you using counter terrorism tools to label these concerned parents about mask mandates and vaccine mandates, which, by the way, they will be proven completely true. They basically already are. They will be absolutely vindicated. This show will be vindicated, concerned parents across the country will be vindicated. Because masks did not work, they did not stop the spread, nor will they ever. Nevertheless, this is the state of things as they now stand that if parents express concern, if they voice their opposition, they were surveilled by the FBI using counter terrorism tools. We now know
Did FBI Target Parents Despite Garland's Sworn Testimony?
"Breaking last night from congressman Jim Jordan, who's going to be joining the show next week when Charlie is back. From his much needed vacation, he's going to be detailing what he's uncovered. There is a whistleblower, a smoking gun with new information that shows the FBI used terrorism tools to target concerned parents. This is despite attorney general Merrick Garland's assurances to Congress, under sworn testimony, mind you that the Department of Justice was not using its resources to target concerned parents. And now a whistleblower is confirming that the FBI has labeled dozens of you as with a special counter terrorism label in its investigation. Now, I want to play some sound here to build this out. Now, how did we get here? Let's play cut one 12. This is Jim Jordan on Jesse watters prime time last night, play cut one 12. And again, if you're a mom, you're a dad, you're a gun owner, you're a Republican, and you're standing up for your kids. Oh my goodness, look out because here comes the FBI. And again, in a direct contradiction to what he told us under oath in the committee. And never forget that this Jesse, look, remember how quickly this happened. September 29th, the school board association sends a letter to the Biden White House. 5 days later, October 4th, Merrick Garland issues this memorandum that lays out this snitch line together, go after parents, and then 16 days later, the FBI sends out the email that's establishes this threat tag designation that was put on these parents. All that happened last fall in 22 days. When have you ever seen the federal government move that fast? So they moved that fast because they were going after people. As you just pointed out, just like the Obama White House went after a new Obama IRS went after conservative same dynamic here,
Catherine Engelbrecht: Investigation Moving Forward After '2000 Mules'
"We are moving forward in investigations in Arizona. And we are thrilled. I mean, just yesterday, you the county put out a press release that they now have in addition to the two they've already have under indictment. There's 16 more that they've just announced. And so we are thrilled about that. We are seeing progress in Georgia. It's Georgia is a politically charged environment right now, and there are on the Republican side. There are camps fighting against each other one that wants to see this investigation proceed and the Kemp, the Brian Kemp camp that wants to bury it. And so that's a challenge. But we're working through it yet and it's also progressing in Wisconsin. We have a couple of law enforcement efforts in quite there. So yes, it's all going well. And then what's next beyond Leon that is something that we're calling pulling the rip cord and frankly Sam maybe the thing I am most excited about because I'm an activist and I know the power of citizen engagement. And pulling the rip cord means we are going to take all of the data that we have and release it publicly for the purpose of crowdsourcing and further research.
Al Jazeera Reporter Killed During Israeli Raid in West Bank
"Turn to that. Because I've tried to figure out who shot whom and the Palestinians are not the Palestinian authority is not cooperating with the idea. What is your assessment of the situation, doctor Oren? So last night I was talking to an Israeli journalist and I said, just watch your authority is going to say that they found a 5.56 bullet in the journalists. Now the Israeli forces use 5.56 palisades usually use 7.62 at the colossal cost bullet, but they also do have American a fours and M 16s. And I also think that the Palestinians wouldn't cooperate with an Israeli offer for a joint investigation. And they rejected it, even though the Biden administration asked Allison is to do it. They quickly closed the case. I heard this morning that they've already buried the body. And the passwords are making a calculation. Yeah, maybe the Biden administration will get a little aggravated, but the international community is going to come down hard on Israel. I was looking at the international press coverage, NBC had an item on it where they did an interview and the Israeli. They only talked about the greeting Palestinians and the implication is that we are guilty before we're judged. And
Terror Attack Kills 3 in Israel
"The biggest story of the morning, the one that actually impacts most Americans has to do with the stock markets and investments. But I want to start by recognizing the sorrow and throughout Israel after terrorist attack leaves three young fathers dead leaving behind 16 children. The terrorists suspects are 19 and 20 year old Palestinians. And there's a statewide manhunt underway and you can read about it at times of Israel, but I want to focus on those 16 children. I've always thought that a young father's favorite holiday is the 4th of July and the United States because there's like nothing involved except grilling and driving to where the fireworks are, right? So Israel's 4th of July was yesterday. And at the close of it, these young dads, no doubt, accompanied by their families, were all attacked by axe wielding a knife wielding. Allegedly had gone, but they're not gunshot that are just below victims young dads. All of the three dead ones struggling for their life 16 children. And how do you get that much hate into a 19 and a 20 year old? I just don't know, but prayers for everyone in Israel and especially the families of these three victims. Have a cook, boaz goal, an Oren bin yifter.
Monthly Rents Skyrocket Amid Record Inflation
"Hey everybody, Tyler Charlie Kirk show. What are the new results out of Ohio mean for the midterms? Our Democrats favored to win anything at all, and also a new announcement from turning point, pack, TP pack dot com that is TP PAC dot com, or you guys can contribute some grassroots donations to help America first candidates across the country that's TP PAC dot com. We talk with Tyler Boyer about that and the need to reclaim the America first mantle from the ground up. Email me your thoughts is always freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com, get involved with turning point USA at TP USA dot com or email me your thoughts is always freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Buckle up everybody here. We go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running The White House folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy, his spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job. Building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created turning point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd dot com. I want to lead with this one thing. I have a friend of mine who's a wonderful American from Dallas, whose in real estate, probably one of the top private owners of apartment buildings in the country. And he just said, hey, Charlie, I want you to see these rent inflation crazy numbers. I'm not going to say his name just to, you know, for obvious reasons. But so this is the last 30 movements, okay? So Phoenix, for example, for the last 30, the average prior rent used to be 1325 a month for his and he owns apartment buildings all over Phoenix. Now it's 1693 a month. That means that rent has gone up 27.8% on average in Phoenix. It is last 30 movements. Austin, 23%, San Antonio 21%. Dallas Fort Worth, 18%. North Carolina, 16% Houston 15%. The real inflation rate, I said this the other day, and someone laughed at me, but when they laugh at us, that's how you know we're probably right. I said the real inflation rate is 35%. I said it's right near there. For working people, that's about where it is. If you count gas, you count food, you can't travel. You count all that other stuff. So Andrew and I were talking in the break, he says, I don't know, I don't know, have we peaked too early, Andrew said of Republicans, are we going to be able to sustain this the November? I said, look at these rent numbers. You're trying to tell me people are going to keep the people in charge over this. I don't know, but someone who does know is Richard barris, from the people's pundit, and he's wearing a tie just to make me look bad. Big data polls, Richard barris, Richard. Welcome back to the program. Hey, thanks for having me back. I appreciate it. So a lot to unpack here. Let's start with kind of what happened in Ohio. What does that message send? What is your polling show? How big of a deal is what just happened in Ohio? You know, it's a big deal, Charlie, for the future of the party. The direction of the party, you know, the Trump endorsed candidates outside of JD Vance even did great. There was the first congressional district in Indiana. She won, so, you know, I mean, oh, and by the way, Ohio 9. So that was a race the media definitely was watching and trying to take out, you know, take down the Trump endorsed candidate. He did pull it off and he did incredible in an outside of Toledo, which is where a lot of people thought that Gaborone would do better. You know, so in the end, if you look at where van specifically got his support from, the reason I think a lot of these polls messed up outside of Vance's 100% correct. Outside of Remington, which was pulling for another campaign, they were just wrong. Some of the other public polls didn't really catch Vance's full support because when a pollster does a likely voter model, I suspected this was happening and it did. Those new Trump accounts, they're not really Republicans, Ohio has a lot of them. And they'll tell you, I'm going to vote. I'm likely to vote or I'm certain to vote. But then the pollster will go back and look at vote history and in a primary. If they're not a two out of four voter, meaning they voted in at least two and the last four primaries, they'll get screened out. And because these voters are newly Republican and close primary, they didn't have much vote history and you could see it all over. Mahoning, Youngstown, trumbull, the election day and wood in the northwest, just south of Toledo. That was Trump vote. That is Trump vote. And then Vance did excellent, obviously. In Cleveland, Hamilton county and the suburbs around it. So at the end of the day, it sent a very clear message. The president saw a very strong grip on the Republican Party without a doubt.
An In-Depth Look at Nina Jankowicz, the 'Disinformation' Specialist
"Jankowicz is now in charge of censoring people's speech from the federal government, but before she said that the executive branch shouldn't have the power to determine what is fake news play cut 16. Imagine that, you know, with president Trump right now calling all of these news organizations that have inconvenient for him stories that they're getting out there that he's calling fake news and now lashing out at platforms. I would never want to see our executive branch. Have that sort of power. She reminds me of Pete Buttigieg. Reminds you of Pete Buttigieg because she was created in the academy. And for a very specific purpose, she was created in the academy because she's there she's basically like a somebody that is there in the branch of government that will never question the hierarchy. That someone within the workings and almost has like a robot, a robotic type of focus on one issue. It's like, you think about it, a disinformation expert, somebody in power, picked up Nina jankovic, a couple years ago, saw that she had some, I guess, I don't quite understand. I don't quite know the word skill, I guess. But she was very likely to obey, right? She wanted approval. I think Nina jankowicz wants approval by other people. And she had an unflinching loyalty to the party line. Someone saw that she had a lot of potential for that. So someone obviously decided to get Nina jankowitz in the right positions, working on the Ukraine desk, working in all sorts of places that eventually Nina jankowicz could have an over promotion just like Pete Buttigieg mayor Pete and they go to these type elite schools. They never say anything disagreeable to the consensus. And they're honestly quite boring. Like if you sat down with Pete Buttigieg or need a jenko, they wouldn't really have an interesting unique thought, right? They just kind of regurgitate what other people would say. They are craft, they
Nilsa Alvarez Unpacks America's Political Truth
"Now you've worked on some very successful campaigns. You've advised the senator Rick Scott Ron DeSantis, a worked on the Trump campaign. Can you unpack for us the truth of what's been happening politically in the last ten years in America? Because if you look at the figures from 2020, it is remarkable, of course this will be denied by the left behind closed doors. They're very worried about it, of course. But if you look at the figures for minority support for this non politician for president Trump, you see not only a 12 13 million vote increase between 16 and 20, you also see the highest rate of minority support for president Trump in the black and the Hispanic community in comparison to any Republican candidate or incumbent since the 1960s, so is it too much to say Nelson that this is an awakening? Can you unpack for us what is happening? Because we've been told for so long that, oh, the Democrats succeeded. They painted the GOP with a brush that they don't care. They're not interested in the minority of vote. What's changed in the last decade? Well, that's an amazing question. And just to bring some perspective when I serviced these different campaigns, it was under the umbrella of the GOP as a faith and Hispanic engagement director where I managed several campaign offices one for Trump in Hialeah in 2016 and then desantis and Scott in 2018 and Broward county. And so in 2015, the data was showing us and because I'm a pastor's wife and my connections were really in the ministry world. I would say that the data was showing that only 5% of church goers were participating in primaries, which is a very, very bad, it was just bad news for the evangelical and the Hispanic faith vote. So we started a very aggressive voter registration operation with our network of ministries and it ended up being the largest voter registration operation in the state of Florida, leading into 2016. And because so much was at stake in 2016, just the body of price in the Hispanic faith community started waking up and starting. We started having a record number of Hispanics that were registering as Republicans at our voter registration drives, not because we were waving a partisan banner, but because when they understood which party stood for their Hispanic conservative values, they started realizing on their own. Oh my gosh, I'm
Harvard, Slavery, and the Confusion of It All
"I'm not quite clear. They were Harvard faculty 65 members, I think you said, who had slaves, obviously in the 19th century. They were sorry, just to interrupt. You just to correct, they said that they didn't specify the number of faculties that they said that between them 70 slaves. 70 slaves. There are 70 slaves on nuts, slave owners, right? I should probably much fewer slave owners because many had more than one. Okay. What on God's earth does that have to do with Harvard and blacks today? I know. No, no. Sorry. Well, you know what? The way you responded? Nothing. It's exactly right. Nothing. Don't make me laugh, Dennis. I have a cough. Right. It's a problem. Excuse me. Sorry to the listeners. This is real. My cough. Enjoy. Right, everything about this is real. No, I want to analyze it. Obviously it was partially rhetorical question. But what would they answer? I don't understand. So in the course of all of Harvard's history and Harvard goes back to the 18th century, so it's one of the first 17. Does that right? It was the 1600s. 16, 36, I think. That's astonishing. I don't even know anything was happening then. Okay, be that as it may, fine. So Harvard goes back all that time and in the entire time it had 70 slaves. It, I mean, members of the faculty or whomever or administration. So I'm not I'm still not understanding what is their argument. We owe the descendants of those slaves, or all blacks, what is their thinking? I don't know, Dennis, that's very interesting. They never really specified what their goal is or what they're thinking here is. The opening of the video that I mentioned, again, there's so much to unpack in that video. But they talk about how Harvard is seen as this perfect place in this ivory tower. The best of the best. And yet, there's an ugly history hidden in the walls. And we must confront this history. I guess that's the closest I can get to what their goal is.
The Amendments Woodrow Wilson Supported for the Sedition Act
"And I touched on this yesterday and I want to tell you about Woodrow Wilson a little bit more detail In addition to being a racist and a segregationist and a Democrat And a so called progressive And this is straight out of unfreedom of the press but nonetheless the facts are important During the course of World War I which will Wilson who had been a leaning progressive intellectual for decades supported a series of congressional amendments that Congress added to the so called espionage act Which collectively became known as the sedition act of May 16th 1918 Sedition act It was one of the acts passed under John Adams you'll recall And this act stated in part whoever when the United States is at war shall willfully utter print write or publish any disloyal profane scurrilous or abusive language about the form of government of the United States for the constitution of the United States Where the military or naval forces of the United States are the flag of the United States or the uniform of the army or the navy of the United States into contempt scorn Or disrepute shall be punished by a fine of not more than $10,000 back then It's big today was massive back then Or the imprisonment for not more than 20 years or both Provided that any employee or official of the United States government who commits any disloyal on patriotic or disloyal language or who and it abusive and violent matter criticizes the army or navy or the flag of the United States shall be at once dismissed from service
Ari Fleischer's Inspiration to Write 'Suppression'
"With you You got a book coming out called suppression deception snobbery and bias no one better to analyze that situation with the media other than you what inspired you to write the books coming on I think in July you probably pre order now I would guess I would inspire you to write this book It's so much out there Dan I wrote because the press keeps getting so much wrong and they just don't care And it really was driven home during the Trump era They were so brutally unfair to president Trump the way they presented everything especially in 2015 and 16 when he was running and then how they get credibility to things that were garbage The Steele dossier the entire collusion attack and then the suppressed information that the public needed to know that was true So I got fed up and I said I'm going to analyze how the press does this job
Trish Sits Down With KeyCity Capital's Charlie Dombeck
"I'm joined. Again, on the program by my friend Charlie DOM, great to have you back, Charlie from key city capital, who, by the way, has been predicting this, thinking that we were heading in this direction, maybe not as soon as it's happening, but at Charlie, you've been warning about this for quite some time. Give us your reaction to the GDP numbers. Yeah, so in the pandemic, in the early stages, we saw GDP decline, but we expected a recover. We got the recovery. This is a little bit different. We have been talking about this event since I have been working with you on your show. It was a bit unexpected by the markets, but not unexpected by us. And I believe we are in the early stages of an economic correction, potential economic recession. And here's the thing, we have not even experienced the significant interest rate increases at the Federal Reserve is poised to enact. And 13 out of the last 16 times the Federal Reserve increased interest rates, we ended up in a recession. And now you have major banks around the world predicting potentially very severe economic recession coming forward. Yeah. I mean, that was a new report out of Deutsche Bank, just this week. A couple of weeks ago, they said maybe it would be a mild recession. Now they're talking about a major recession. I don't know how the fed manages to move rates that much higher and not actually cause an economic
"16" Discussed on Life in 16 oz.
"The there's everest the west ridge. Tom horn horns. Can't even remember these last names. And then of course What i i thought was phenomenal was reinhold messner. The crystal horizon. Just there's there's tons of beautiful books. I think one of the guys. Chris boddington did the hard way another great book that i read about. Just it's insane. How these climbers men and women old and young massive groups or solo have taken this the highest mountain in the world. Which last time i checked it. Twenty nine thousand. I dunno twenty nine feet. It might have changed a couple of hundred feet based on how things moving geographical and technology and all that stuff. But what's funny about it is i. Think airliners airliners fly around thirty five thousand feet or something it's It's it's crazy. How close anyway. After reading all that. Of course. I talked to sherry and she got me all like side.

She's i mean she she's seen she's seen the movie. She's read the books and she knows who like for instance scott fischer is who at one. Point was one of the phenomenal guides.

Up everest and other places for many years in drew a reputation for being a bit of a crazy out going kind of guy and people loved him and he was on that ninety six expedition in he was one of the.

Climb climb around you know. Just do different. Types of exercises of france sent maratho- half marathons in different countries. So what was funny again. I got way ahead of myself.

I was the guy that you know this. You know. let's do this. I need to do this. Can you come down any hand. You know so you know help out you know the game in when we gotta get hunting extract honey do all that stuff and i really enjoyed helping them out. But i really didn't know anything too much. I knew about it. But i never really done myself so it was kind of charting that i helped out with so i got a job. At manor hill. It was a really rough spring in Near the year before select twenty seventeen had pretty much just really ross years where we had hive collapse. It was just so sad. Nothing really grew. Buds are falling off. Before you know all the blues were falling off before they could get to where they needed soon days. Were really taking a beating so we had to get you know new Packages for all the hives here. And i just kind of mentioned to family at the farm that you know i'm going to be ordering detaches you know. Are you guys interested in having here on the farm because it is a great spot up on the hill back behind the top born. And i'd be willing to do the beezer walling and mary ann randy like we have been waiting for somebody to ask if that and they were they were more than more than interested in so i got all that stuff together and so The spring summer spring of twenty nine just last year. I was able to get hives in so we have to hives the first year three hives this year and then like i said soon as hives came in mary planted fruit trees close. We have apple peach in cherry trees within a stone's throw from where the beehives are back. Top barn. this is an all encompassing operation. That sounds like it will continue to grow throughout the years. Well yeah absolutely. And i had a couple of final questions for him. And regarding for instance you know when you make that leap to be able to walk into your brewing. Go look at all the steelers. Look at all the cool tubes the lines and the connections. And so i asked him what. His favorite brewing item was like when he walks in. What's what really excites him. When he gets when he gets a brew going this way to say i. I mean i really like our canning lights are catering. Line is it. Every it's are gaining line. We have cody pressure. Filters and it's it's really really tripped out. We just got up green on it and we about forty one. Kansas admitted which is a lot for us. I also asked him. Because this was something that you and i have discussed from last year november. We have this weird kind of strange window. We're like okay. Here's halloween and what do people. What a beers doing halloween. They go pumpkin crazy rights. Yeah so you can go out and you can get tons of stuff with pumpkin. Spice i mean. We did thirty five percent. Ab coverage of pumpkin beers. Please go back and listen to that. Pumpkins yeah we. We were pumpkin chunking. But then all of a sudden. There's that fast quick leap to winter beers holiday beers like we discussed in the beginning with anchor anchor brewing company peppermint cloves all spice nutmeg in we. Cinnamon we get it. That's easy stuff when it comes to things but as anybody actually struggled and took on the tough thanksgiving bear as anybody made anything that with turkey or gravy or stuffing well before mill. House comes on. I just wanted to say you could probably take ingredients that are considered bready. Yeah that might be your stuffing. I've never heard anybody. Even try to jump into the turkey world or the gravy world. but things like cranberries. Yeah pecan pie with feature those before You know there's pumpkin pie. There's apple pie. So here's here's mill house on what they've already have in store one of the beers we're going to be releasing next week is a. That's been aged and saab on blocked barrels with cherries. That we were able to get from the farm and before that it was blackberries and before that it was blueberries so we have these projects going on where we have these wine barrels without resides in actual fruit from the area in the farm.

"They. They have a respect and which which we might. Showcase here later in the interview but to have respect for Fritz Maytag who was a bit of a an authoritarian on being on time Dan said he would call me at five twenty and called me at five twenty, one O. Ge Is. It was quite funny but before they get into because as soon as I had him, I said, we gotta get into the anchor steam anchor brewing history, but I want to just double back a little bit regarding. The stamp collecting comment which I thought was amazing it. It is out there it is what you see. We went to lefties taproom they have thirty plus beers on tap and you. Can See people go up there and go all right. I'll have that who have that and then on now have this and they bounced around the menu, which is understandable dusit wine. So do you think that they do that just as they can say that they've tried ABC Or are they looking for something new and well, how many people go to a brewery get a sampler and go I like beer one, two and three in that order and then I'm GonNa go back and get bureau number one I. Mean That's what we've done in the past. Yeah, I. think that's. The point of the flights or the samplers are made for is to figure out what you like in a smaller version, grab it, and then stick to that beer. But some people go in and they just take the the radio. Hey, you gotta read I'll take. Oh absolutely right yeah. They know what they want and they're gonNA they're going to drink that but I this is one thing I do appreciate and I wanted to point this out is Dan in Julio. Liked to drink high initially and knocking about Ab, right? Yeah. Not Not drink high as marijuana. But I know I know Julio does not but yeah. Exactly. I NEED TO BE CLARITY MINUS thirty. Yeah they drink high ab initially. Yeah and it could be it could be a six or seven, and then they bring it down to a more sessional beer. Okay. That could be in the four threes. and. That's that's how they taper down that the evening versus of when you get a nine. Oh now I'm going to get a four now when you get a seven. Three now, I'm going to get four. It's all over the place, which is what we're doing. Wrong. Maybe that's why we don't remember the next day. All right. So let's let's get more back into the anchor history. Tell people is that steam is. A beer that a nickname for a beer that evolved out of the gold. Rush. And it's it's a classic story of when you don't. Have what you need You make. and. In this case, we have the gold rush. And all of a sudden San Francisco, the population explodes. And the people who got rich weren't necessarily the people that. Went up to the Goldfields to the rivers American river and started panning for gold. The people that made money were the ones who sold the pick axes in the pans brewers came out because they knew there was a population. That would love to have beer they. The limitation was there was no ice and When you make ligers, you have to cool down what you just boiled. In. In the Lauter Tun and then over. So the hot cattle you've got a cooled down in a hurry so you can pitch yeast. And Yeast lives at a certain certain temperatures. And so cooling down in a hurry is important. Because you risk infection, you risk bacteria. for the cool at the boiled this liquid. It's GonNa take it might take days. and. The fear can be infected and you won't. You won't know until you've gone through the whole process and you go oh, we haven't started dear you know ask any home brewer and so they had to figure out a way to cool that liquid down in a hurry. And what they came up with was a new story. A shall open for mentor would cool that liquid more quickly than the traditional deep vessels. A also had forgiving San Francisco temperature. So they could get away with making loggers in San Francisco with without the benefit of ice 'cause they. Was Up Sierras they couldn't get it. So with schauble pants with the forgetting San Francisco temperature, they could make the now popular loggers. In a fashion did actually wasn't like the lawyers that. The miners were having. Back? East. In other countries it was a little different. It was a little hardier. And it it got the nickname steam beer. We can talk about that later. But After the Gold Rush, there were number of breweries in San Francisco making steam beer. NFL Out of Bennett fell out of favor. Prohibition. Prohibition and also also you could get ice. Technology caught up so you can make lotteries the way the rest of the world were making lockers. Lighter and crisper. and. So Steve fell out of favor last make steam beer was anchor brewing. Company. And they held on till nineteen, sixty five. When they were about to go out of business. They were only a draft early it was still using wooden barrels in making sixty five. And a bartender north each. Told someone who drake steam beer hey you might want to check out the burry they're going out of business. It's part of San Francisco his. In might WANNA it out so Fritz Maytag, the hero of the anchor brewing. Story Letdown see the brewery. which was under the freeway at like eight and Brandon. I think and ended up buying it for a couple of thousand bucks. which was smart. And Getting, make a done for ten years with you could say was not that smart but he he had a strong belief that there was something to say. And that there was something unique to this beer and That's that's part of the anchor steam beer story so. history. On anchor and there's variations I mean, you mentioned some stuff and then I've read some things Dan bring some other things I what I thought was interesting. Was He? Fritz. was. Maybe, well known as a as a maytag. Son of Maytag and he was in San Francisco. He was at old Spaghetti Factory, which is one of his fun places to go because they had anchor steam on tap their. And the guys like Hey, I know I know you're Fritz Maytag and I know you have money and I know you love that beer and maybe that's where things like hey. This beer night might might not be available to you anymore you might want to go over there and use your money. So this guy actually was the hero story has. Some bartender never know his name but yeah, that to me that was interesting in in how he heard about it. And was. Sort of. corralled that weighed to anchor in apparently that day. Drinking in the afternoon told about it and then went straight over there and bought it right on the spot I. Wonder How many he had before he decided he. was going to be. Just breweries my favorite in the world I heard that they him and his father did clash because. You know if you're a maytag planes guide and you stay within the bet you hey, I got I got an established business. My son's going to take over nope Nope I wanNA I wanNa Beer And that was my next question was, what did he come to the table I am buying this place don't they call a riot? Cool. We're staying. We're to stay above above water. What do you know about brewing? So that was, my thing is where we're his as reference points in. Managing owning. You know improving. Things that anchor steam or anchor brewing was at that point in time. So we'll see we'll see what else you have to say for its had a template to start with when you get to visit the brewery which I hope everybody does someday we'll. We'll Dan you you`re Not GonNa date.

"I guess we're almost save wavelength. We're Brown. Ale Fan fans, and we know what? He likes lost coast. Downtown Brent Brown and which I do love that as well and I I grew up on nukii Brown Newcastle. Brown not the log Anita's Brown. Right going into number two. The Aroma I gave a one. One There was. It was like kind of a toasty roasted. But that's that's it. I. Got Nothing off of it. I gave it to. I same thing I was I was trying to get something out of it. I. Felt it at sometimes it was more pronounced but honestly you. No and what's weird about is I guess? What do we expect from Brownell? Honestly. So? You're not you're, not getting. Nestle from Brown, Ales like you're already hazies and certain as and pails. So maybe we're being a little harsh but I gave it to. All. Right. Moving onto flavor. I gave it a two. I believe that it fell flat even though it was it was highly carbonated I. Didn't know there was not much. To, go on. Certainly. The multi was there but I didn't think that it was robust enough to give with more than a two. It was carbonated more than the other one I felt I gave it a three. There were there's something different about different hints of hops the other one I couldn't taste any hops or notice any this one that I felt there was something underlying flavor that. was was. was off putting in away watered down taste down. But also wrote that. Moving away from German Emmys me a brown to a German Bach. gave it a three. All right. Now Field I. Slammed it down to a to. I said one and done on this one. It disappears meanwhile he bought a six pack. Came in ruins six, but it dissipate so quickly that. There was nothing no lingering. Anything with it at all so Even what? I gave it a to i. gave it a three. Okay. I felt this one had more zing which I don't necessarily want more zing Brown. In a watery again, I, just felt there was that. Constant. Feel of too much morning. So there you got three. Well while we send our numbers into. Calculated machine tally up the scores. What were your overall impressions move on Prussian for Beer number? One? Was I felt it was more balanced. and. Although. Not much to it I guess but it also thin to the Classic Classic Brown Category Yeah I felt the same way. I think you basically summed it up right what about number? Two number two I thought was kind of. It would be an an off brand of Cola if you will. It's. Something that I wouldn't have again. Unless I didn't have the money to buy the the name brand something. It just felt like so that it was wasn't up to par. Assessment. I felt mult base was definitely different from the first one something about the hops. I'm very curious about. But hops. Pushed. Through. in mid further away from what I typically like about Brown Ale that I like. Alright well here come the final scores in a sealed envelope. Before we reveal the winner. Which bigger? which which beard you hate the most. because. I like both these while. I'm not going to say it but. I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA guess I'm going to go on a limb and say that number one was. Cigar cities and Madero. Or also known as my beer and number two is your. News Drool through. Sky. Yeah. Well I'm going to reverse executive what you say. Controversial. No I really felt this way I think that the first one was Moose Drool in the second one was the Maduro. That's kind of. So you're saying you you probably guessing you don't like them adore. Oh. No, I'll take the Moose jaw. You'll take them maduro over. Yeah. Yeah I. Don't know why. But yeah. Maybe, maybe he likes. Montana and I'd like Tampa Florida. Bookaholic. Getting, older. All right. Boy. You GotTa get a history going here. Let's see. If somebody nails this brandon open up that sealed envelope. All right. So the score for the first beer is eighteen points from F- alive. And the second beer has thirteen points of huge difference. So that makes number one, the winner of beer, Dome, which happens to be. Love. I was. Actually got it. Right. Then yet one usually it's like. Okay, you didn't guess it right but you still had the better is. Well. That makes. Maduro yards. From Cigar.

Do there you could barely drive anything. Without scratching the sides, even a side-by-side, we'll be scratching the side of it but no safer vehicles. So a lot of our job, not just our goal is just educating people out there like the tread lightly the leave no trace, the respecting the land everybody sees a gate close to no no. Now, the clubs in the fourth service are bad because they closed the gates and they won't let us in and you know. So it's our job to explain to him. You know this is why it's closed. It's a seasonal closure. We need to do work for you guys before everybody else can go enjoy it. So that's why we need to close it for this week. So we can go in and work and make it safer. Make It.

At least once or twice a week. Just to. Say What's going on what's everybody doing who's going to drop bombs this week you know Again in the first month of the group, it was very active. The first month to two months. It was very active I. Mean it was you had people at least three or four days a week. We're posting that they were getting bombs dropped or people were posting. Where I'll take pictures before I, go drop bombs and be like I'm coming to your neighborhood you know stuff like that. And then it really and then it slowed down which these things have a tendency to do anytime. You ask somebody to get to do something give somebody something for free without knowing for sure that they're going to get something in return.

We'll check you can check our youtube page in some of our photos, but we're surrounded by some some paraphernalia. Here's some memorabilia, American flag some other flags from some sports. Because, you know we're trying to get a festive mood and we're trying to lift our spirits backup still dealing with this cove situation whatever he's orange in sports by the way. I. Know This is supposed to be America. Episode. But you know there's there hasn't been baseball. There hasn't been hockey I know well, baseball. Baseball Star backup yes. Yup. Jiang's versus Yankees versus the nationals and versus a giant. Giant that's a pretty good way to start right. East and West I suppose. Yeah. But I I do want to throw this out there as a as A. As an update, Liverpool officially lifted the Cup the Premier League title, Cup Final Thirty Years After mazing game against Chelsea beating them five to three we were we were we were hoping that last year that this was going to happen right and then they fell short by a point. Yeah. Yeah. So this is crazy just bedlam and it's so funny now because now on social media, it's all about Liverpool fans a a completely completely throw out social distancing and ignore what they say ignore Social Disney's and basically thirty years people I'm pretty sure they don't sh about go vid. In anything they don't care. I wouldn't care. Honestly they're all GONNA get covered for crying out loud to deal with it. But yeah, just go out and party and live life don't be hiding from. Like people are wearing a man wearing a mask in their car by themselves. I love that like you. Idiot Really or the people that walked by themselves. With an ask on down the sidewalk on the same Hawk you're like. What is what is your perception? They see it floating in the air like Oh. There it is. Maybe it's coming. To give them the benefit of the doubt, maybe they're just getting used to having to wear the thing and they don't like taking off and. I'll give them that that benefit of a doubt. Sure. We're GONNA piss. Somebody. Off. Shows. That's fine. All right. So. One of the things that. We wanted to bring up was. The whole whole berry bars are still closed but. You know this I somebody sent an article that talked about this Burri found a way to reopen. It's not it's a no brainer I mean these. Bruce are becoming extremely event of finding out ways to move their establishment outside create six feet of distance and also hey. You're not. You're a brewery, but you don't serve food. Wait a minute. Yeah Yeah guys listen to our couple episodes ago behold. That's right. Yeah. They have they have got to be. Rolling in the MOOLA. Disappoint. You you have to buy in this now obviously, he's been. Well, this episode flip-flopping. So he's a for later. So dying breed one of the places in Oakdale that I went recently when you get there. You know you get your sampler and stuff but they they ask you to go ahead and to to purchase food, and maybe that's the stipulation. Yeah in order to have the beer on site and they're doing their their distancing but but you can actually buy like a fry. Well. You know maybe a rack ribs or something well, I mean if your place as Iraq ribs by a back records, I mean there's some locations that have some food that I really don't I'm really not hungry for. CREPES. Or. Yeah fine. I'll get Zucchini Sandwich. Dan Vegetarian food truck anything for that beard exactly. Like I got in front of me. I might not be eating it but I got it front of me. So yeah, that's quite interesting and I know that we have a couple couple of people that were sending as. Articles that talk about. How brewers are being very inventive and I think it is absolutely true and it's funny because the ones that we follow who've been on the show before we get updates and we're not sure about our opening hours Ogan. We're not sure about how you know what? Are Our tables and chairs are outside Nope nope. Back inside not they're back outside now inside. So it is crazy. So. Yeah. I would definitely look into you mentioning. Stock prices or something weren't you about Oh? Yeah. Yo Know Stockpiling stop knocked the prices but the pile. I just read an article that said that the US is running low on aluminum cans. It's like a Steve Martin. It's all about the. The running low because so many people are drinking at home they're not going to the breweries they're picking up. Their favourite bruise maybe the stores or even from the brewery itself I can't I can't fault anybody on that no no. Not at all not at all but Yeah I. Absolutely. You may at this, there's so many sellers sell tsars. That are using the aluminum these days that at some point, you may not see your favourite brew in the stores. By the way I'm I've got to tell you this I saw your high neuner. O Hacking or what? Yeah. That's there's nothing better than sitting back with a four pack of a high neuter. It's not beer people, but it does the job. Spoken by somebody who knows the booze cruise crap. Oh there you go. Well speaking stock I mean by stock in aluminum companies Oh. Yes and I'm definitely going to well. I'm sure there's quite a lot of smart people out there that have turned and bought stock in Clorox and Lysol. Depot. Walmart target, the places that are open. Nonstop Hey before what I wanted to do was. Before we jumped into to to the show. Yeah. Let's give a shout to Leeds Liens I. Know You don't even know about leads but. My Dad loved Leeds United which is an English. Football team and that's kind of where I was from I'm born in that area. So it's truly the local favorite team he's on. American. I know sixteen years they haven't been into the Primer League. They're finally got back and it's it's going to be amazing to see them versus Liverpool which hasn't happened in a long time. I can't wait to see when they're gonNA play. That'll be that would that it'll be a very Game on my talk that is going to be an. Epic all because I tell you right now leads has a bad reputation. Penalties with no, we're just just a dirty team back in the day. They were dirty team Fiat but I mean there's a lot of controversy about them in the actually spiked now here and there and busted a couple of dreams from Manchester United and Chelsea and Liverpool, and on telling you, it's going to be interesting to have them back in the league man is going to be pretty. So? It's one of the bring that up shut out to lease united and my pop up their love you. This is GONNA be awesome. Now, let's get the show start..

"It's it's one of those things that gives you that. Good Warm Fuzzy. It just looks neat. And maybe it just psychologically tells your brain like this is really good fresh fresh. I would love to make a gigantic batch of English dark mild and have it on tap at all times. And we've done it. Guess who buys it drinks it me like four beer geeks that come in. You know those kinds of beers to me or just fantastic. I go somewhere and see that the great but the general public typically don't buy them so they're really hard to make a full batch of drug my homebrew system down here. And I think what we're GONNA try to start doing is making just like one offs and put it on Cask. You know English mile the dark mile of best bidder things of that nature just really solid classic. Little Beers that we can put on tap that are like three and a half percent alcohol and the other thing that really connected me with Jason Is. Were the same age. So he's he's a fan of the movies and the jokes that are out there that we completely get from the eighties from the Eighties. Seventies eighties seventies right so it was pretty funny to go in there or look up their their website. And you look at some of the names if you chuck if you chuckle a little bit you got it. You can see the connection and those aren't pillows and I asked him. You gotTa make a beer called fat guy in a little coat but yeah it needs stuff in great great great to talk to him about how he comes up with names so if you look at untapped all any reasonable beer name is gone or used by eight million people already so I just come up with the most obscure movie line or something that probably no one else would ever be dumb enough to name a beer and and use that. Sometimes there situational like when I'm making the beer I'll be hit with an an idea. I keep running list of names on my phone and I have just a bunch that you know when I get inspired by name. I'll write it down and hope someday I'll make a beer that'll match to it. So what about his logo? It's so crazy. What what's what's the back story on the On on this crazy Is A DAVINCI Code Book? Dan You Tom Hanks by the way. His son is looking exactly like him. See Lorde the DAVINCI. What's it called again the the drawing? Yeah the drawing. I looked it up the true Vian. Retrouve Ian Man Yes attrition. There you go. Yeah most people like X. retrieving them but soon as you see it you'll you'll recognize it. It's been movies and Carl's Nur's posters all over the place. My my brother asked. Does he have a copy right on the net or De Vinci? GonNa sue him. I don't know if Davinci's going to really care at this point but now he's he used that actually we looked up Things like symmetry in itself To find out exactly what it means Do you have that? I have that okay so I was GonNa ask you. Did he talk about why he chose that as their logo? Oh my gosh. I did not ask him. That question is son of but I mean it makes sense. The guy wants complete perfect balance suggests. Yes I'm guessing. Whatever you say this he might. He must have looked this so I did I. I looked up the Jason did to always sure yeah so it was meant to show the ideal human proportions Another it's which most people that drink don't have exactly. Yeah trying to heat that aiming choose to fall a little closer to the to the dartboard supposed to be flattened. The curve on our belly-flattening the curve on one thousand nine thing. I think I've gained the Calvin nineteen. Jeez so the trillion man its purpose is to bring together ideas about art architecture. Human Anatomy in symmetry boom in one distinct and commanding image. Well this is like when when was an a- Robert what's his name Griffin. Who's the data on? Here's a data on family. Peter Okay this is like when Peter Griffin watches a movie in the name the name of the movie in the movie from my wife all the time. What do we have here? We have an outbreak. Now go she's like shut up. Okay well so perfect in that. He he wants to like. We talked about in the beginning. He wants that balance between the hops. The malts in everything to be pinpoint accurately perfect. Which really is what they're trying to wo or what. Venue was trying to get across in in the in his drawing there. Yeah I mean I guess I guess we should be happy. That is not called slapped together. Together burry like. I don't know if I would walk. Walk into a brewery called. Just chuck it in their Finn's brewery sit over there. We'll get you something. Maybe we made yesterday remarkable Hodgepodge Brewery hops here. Whatever we had in the freezer. No no this. I think I think Jason is a change of one degree of temperature. Maybe an addition of an ounce of one more ounce or half ounce of something and he'll he'll probably dial that in so to the point where I don't know actually I don't think he'll ever be happy. I think that that's what's great about Aas As well is that the perfectionist Takes over and we really want everything to be as perfect as possible because we know that anything less than that Is just not either our best and I'm sure he feels that same way. It's not his best and he wants to to give his customer Th the greatest experience and the in the the best tasting beer that That he knows that he can that he can brew. Yeah I I agree. I think as an as an artist. I'm doing my own work again. Now it you can sit there and stare at it in you. You're constantly find something and you so you do something and then you can go to bed and wake up the next day and do it again and go out and do something else at one point you gotta step away and just in this case at one point he's got to step away and say just to serve it. Y- move on. I'LL GET. Let's go to the next bridge. Rarely rarely you're gonNA find somebody who walks in and says. Hey Jason it's it's I think I think this is a little like a little dry like one point dry. Oh it's a little multi it's one point two MA. Maybe he wants that. I think he would love that to have somebody coming in to die but then again at the same time it's not as little when people are just consuming the hell out of your beer which luckily they are and Kudos to the community around around true symmetry that are rolling.

"To birth really is particularly known. He was born basically somewhere around the light. Fourth Century guessing right around three ninety eighty or something but what we actually celebrate on. March seventeenth was the date of his death which was March seventeenth in four sixty one. Okay so I. I've spoken to Chris. Quite a few times prior to this. And did you guys know that? Northern Ireland was England's first colony right. So we should all know that at one point time the sun never set on English or England because their colonies were all over the world. So here's another moment from Chris. You know at the druids believe the shamrock to three clover with a sacred plant and can ward off evil and again this was. This was running the reasons that Saint Patrick Chung says it but he used it to explain the Catholic holy which was a difficult concept sometimes for people to get. But that's what we're tape from at for anyone that's out there. The Foreign League clever is not Irish. The foreign lead clover is good luck considered because of its rarity so sometimes I run into places or ads and they're talking about something Irish and I see a four leaf grief green clover. That's great for good luck but it's not Irish Irish. You want that share box that three leaf clover check this one out well. The color green was not the first caller star-shaped or with Saint Patrick's day go back to the seventeenth century. The caller basically that was years was blue and green later Was One of the callers. Obviously in the tricolour flag but the idea of the reliable it caved agreed to the board of this country. You've got you know. The Chicago River had been restored city diagnosed river. That's been going on for a long time. But that was something up until about the seventeenth century. More of a bluish color was used all of you corned beef and cabbage people get ready because your mind is about to be blowing. What is the baby that we have on Saint Patrick's Day corn cabbage again? Not An Irish. Not An Irish dish corned. Beef and cabbage was something that was brought to the Irish another part Security Group of people that slept at the United States. The Jews who were in New York had basically had found because both people were you know as the old I were saying go arrived without a potter a window. They just you know kind of most of arrive with literally the clothes on their back at very little money. But they had a place affected actually work and prosper without the persecution. Not only the religious prosecution persecution but the ethnic persecution and so the Jews showed the Irish corned beef or basically that that be as later became corned beef boiled. The there was a very inexpensive kind of kind of meat. And that's kind of where that started in Ireland. Traditional bail is bacon and cabbage. And if you're wondering if Chris has any information about those little guys that run around with a pot of gold or sprites or you know other mythical creatures hey take a listen to this if you're traveling down one of the main modernized highways in Ireland in the center you see a small tree completely surrounded by a biddle sense. I was curious as to what those were when I was first over there. This is back in the sixties and I ask. It was well. That's a ferry tree. A ferry tree yes sir. They don't remove those they don't know you would never touch a ferry tree when I said. Do you believe in Harry's. Oh No we don't believe in Terry's but you wouldn't want to upset them will cool.

"How he was inspired to go ahead and to start this kind of a specialty store. Business inspired by my last boss. Who ran really good wine section in his story and It was very personal with him very inspired and he brought back the wineries personalities and in the wine them and it was inspiring to me was something that I wanted to do with beer. Patrick's love of craft beer start in a long time ago in the nineties. When things were just kind of ramping up I cut my teeth. You know on Meteors Drake's brewery. He says this location again. Not In the greatest part of town. Let's just kind of get that out of the way but Patrick says that this location chose him and he goes on to talk about exactly what that means so I have an owner. He's a really cool guy and He Invested in me and gave me a kind of autonomy to to do my thing and so it was really the the location chose me and it's not your first thought of but. I used to go to all these breweries in weird spots you know and I saw them. Doing inspired things and people would come. You know you wonder where you're driving to and you're like okay. It's here and it's pretty cool. I'm GONNA come back. I'm gonNA tell a friend so I was banking on the craft. Your community having that kind of Understanding of where I I am over here on seventy and and Knowing that we may be on the other side of the tracks. I'M GONNA make it as cool as I can For you know the atmosphere that we're trying to put on hold on a second if the building chose him. Yeah why did we feature him in the Halloween episode? Because that is a creepy he didn't hear actual audible voice. Talk to him no so they were open about a year and a half and the started to expand their selection and an added several more More depth to this specialty market and he talks about some of the things that they offer today our barbecue section rubs and sauces or or of that standard of our beer section and all the other little niche spots in our story.

"The style so after that talk about dry hopping in Hayes West Coast. I actually looked up the the styles of. Ipa's if it right yeah. Yeah so the one article that I looked at that I read was from two thousand sixteen and then I read another one from two thousand eighteen different. I could imagine twenty twenty. You're adding another one. We just came from a place that through an through. Another a wrench into the mix. And I'm talking very juicy. Nice beautiful tasting wrench. Yes all right. So here's my. Here's my list so you got session. I say which are less alcohol. They're usually below five percent. Those are the ones that you can probably enjoy Andrew or three quite okay. Yeah Very Nice you have double. Ipa's which you've heard of but also known as imperials are getting higher in the IB us. Yep and Dublin peers. The same thing Pie hops more. Mult 'cause you balance you put more hops in you. Put More Molten you balance them out and you keep them going up and up and up and up and they're usually over seven percent right. Dry Hopping Let's see here. I don't know why bring us but I'll just do the Senate to dry hopping is you're trying to gain more aroma But without the bitterness so less abused but more more of the the knows the knows. Yeah absolutely you're trying to get the the variety of Rydell of that particular hop to to nail you in in And have it really speak to your nose which and you can do a double dry hop or people say double or triple dry hot. My brother threw that out the disappears. Trips will help you it. Doesn't you know it's either dry hopped dry hopped you? Can you can go well. This is quadruple dropped. It's still dry hopped. You don't have to do double and triple but okay fine if it's a marketing ploy to to get people interested fine. Whatever single hopped now single hopped actually makes something of of sense? It's a it's one variety of hops. And you'RE GONNA put it in the boyle then you're going to put it in the finish and then you're going to dry hop it so that's if you ever see a beer that says single hopped did they have loaded down with one particular hop. Yeah Okay I think stone had one I think delicious. I think it was delicious or I know too hard at. Aol is all centennial hops. Oh that's what single hopped means fresh hopped. We just talked about the earlier. So Harvest Ales. They call them once a year. Sometimes from the vine to boil in twenty four hours intense. They're brilliant. They're fresh flavored. And of course people standing in line like I did for three and a half hours or more to have a taste. So there you go now British as stuck to the original Indian Indian pail so the British as are typically multi more multilayer They're bitter again. Doing homage to the traditional style of of an EPA there one noted and for for instance breweries like Great Lakes yards. Samuel Smith makes a really good British. Ip a West Coast. There's not they're not as bitter. But they're very Chris Bodies. High carbonation Big tropical fruits very sharp and fruit Ford type of approaches. And let's see here. They're more still Sierra. Note Sierra Nevada and stone brewery the Russian river those the ones that typically started this trend back in the day but burris field work in half Acre and pipe. Works have all taken this to the next level and make a pretty damn good west coast. Ipa is that. That's all the kinds of hops. Yeah they're all as I mean. No Oh my God you want more like no no no. I'm well I mean how many more to this folks this is going to be an IP show for you go. There's a New England style right so Or Hazy New England styles are kind of unfiltered. They're a low bitterness. There a blend of fruity hops. The dry hopped. There's a low carbonation. I'm like a fruit salad in these things and if you if you if you don't like IPA's yes then this is this is this is the Ip for you. Okay Hill farmstead civil society and trillium make a pretty damn good New England Style I so then you have East Coast. I right so there are there are between a British and a West Very piney. Like it's like a huge solid mult a recipe Through and they're not as bright as a West But more complex than a British dog fishes Sixty yes and victory make really good east coast. Ip Okay here we go. There's GonNa there's a there's an oat. I saw soft flake oats oatmeal cozy mouth. Feel there's milkshake. Ipa's cream milk sugar oatmeal in one of these IPA's Oat milk milk flaked oats all right but the milkshake IPA's or fruit as Vanilla low carbonation mouth feel there's also Belgian IPA's which has a Belgian yeast more sweet bready Morm- so there's there's quite quite a lot of stuff out there and more you get to read Ip as Black Brown Ipa's white IPA's. Jeez so yeah there you go just insane amount of Ip as that you could run into in various locations in in the country all right and now you can get your certification in beer with all those Ip mark Of course has his particular favorite said he enjoys.

I asked DHRUV why South Africa pretty basic while the cheap tickets they bought the tickets then the itinerary came after that and I said the horse before the the cart before the horse or is it lucky just going around in a circle South Africa is definitely more of a challenge not as tourist friendly for sure. safety is more of an issue. I went with my guy on that trip as well. we tried to backpack in the Drakkensburg mountains and it's a drunken Burgas Africans four dragons breath so the there's all these really cool the mystical misty mountains and waterfalls everywhere. I'm right on the border of Lesotho. She mentioned in South Africa. Trip is a Drakensberg Mountains Again D. R. A. K. E. N. S. B. Rg Drakensberg Dragon's breath that is how she how she explained it and Louis Lesotho. I'd look that up as well. It's if you look at South Africa okay. I've always thought South Africa was the it was the country that dominated this part of the continent in the southern part of the continent yet but the though is actually a country inside South Africa. It's like a little tiny island inside and then I'm like what I did not know they existed. It's like did to Black Panther come from there but yeah it's cool and then you have the Drakensberg or dragons Berg mountains cool another opportunity if you're ever interested in in ZIP enough to South Africa checked that place out so now back to the whole a girl in her dog here we go where was her moment and begin. I was working endorsed so much that trying to find ways to get myself into the mountains and that's when I kinda had an Aha moment of I will hold myself accountable and also do this the thing that I really enjoy doing an empowering women and that kind of clicked for me so it it was out on a hike torn it happened. I just said I could do this. I'm I wanNA start a website. I can arrange private backpacking trips for people that may be want to try it but don't have the gear don't really want to invest in the gear and just Kinda WanNa hand every all the planning and coordination over to somebody else so people contact me and say hey I wanna I wanna do this. Then we Kinda it. Arrange a custom trip so or these people who are new to backpacking all intermediate yeah I think there there's a of a variation of against mentions the Teenagers Mentions Young Woman moms things like that one of the reconnect even with their their kids but yeah new backpacking flat out don't know anything at all or I know a little bit enough but I I want to go to the next step and and there's also a special moments that she came across that I thought was amazing so Asterik Twi- explain those moments moments that she saw taking these girls out into the country so there's always this moment which teenagers you know when they're out of their comfort zone their parents earns usually sign them up for this and you know when I first meet them they get out of the car and get some like thirteen to sixteen year old girl and they get out of the car and they're trying to be really cool and very adultery and show me like how mature they are and you know that's fine. They're stepping into their adult identity but then so you get them out onto the trail and after navy a day of trying to you know talk to me like an adult and impress me and all this stuff you start recognizing these little really I think they're really cute wonderful moments of a teenager stepping back and getting to be a kid and you know they'll they'll stop and and admire of flour and you know it's not because their parents are on leading on some hike and saying look at this flower. They're actually stopping and going wow look look at that like that's that's art right there or you took a girl out to point Reyes with her stepmom and we stopped for lunch and she just kind of wandered away and then I looked up and she was just running back and forth with the waves washing in you know running from the seafoam and it there's just always scrape moment matt I just I find it in all of my teenagers and they just get to step back and be a kid You've done scalps during scoutmaster asteroid well. You're a scout master. I mastered the scouting experience. That's yeah so you understand this and this cooling. She brings that same thing to a girl in her dog. She recommends three days two nights. She understands the weight considerations because you you you it feels like you're multiply the weight after a couple of miles on on your back Hoe yes and it just so she understands that she understands stink on the body at one point. There are certain people that just like I. I need a shower every night or the vice smell my body odor done route. She's got that and then also you know the the the management of food. If you go out long and you uh have to think about caring for the food and goes bad there's certain things you can take on a short trip in their certain things. You can't take on a long trip and yeah. She basically breaks it down for for them right. They don't have that they've never done this. She gives them the basics and I anti win with the store that you just had yes he she she she explains his stuff and then the expectation is the people feel better about themselves. They're they're empowered powered. They're less afraid and they become more appreciative and respectful of the land and the possibilities that they could have when they it out there interesting. I took a mom and her two girls that were just awesome but the mom said you know I just WanNa go overnight because my daughter has never even like she won't even even use a Porta potty like I don't know how this is going to go and on the second day of the girl you know we always go over the basics of Lena trace ray you you carry out your toilet paper. You Bury you dig a cat hall. We need to go to the bathroom all those things and this girl marches out of the woods just as proud as can be with trowel and said you guys I just pooped in the one and it looks like a fifteen year old girl just dying laughing like it that was her moment omit right like she had she had achieved something she was no longer afraid of your so. She sounds like she's pretty down to earth and regards to know flashing us but I said come on talk to me about some gadgets any experience a neat things that you've come across when it comes to the stuff that I mean it didn't have to be groundbreaking but sometimes you take some of those the camping items out and some people what it does that so this is this is this is her thing this is so basic but it always amazes me is people want to bring a well and you get excited right and they go to Rei and they want to buy everything so the bill pull out like a mess kit like a they'll have a plate and a bowl and a cup and spoon a fork in a knife and I always kind of okay. Do you really need that like I carry a spark burke and a cup and my cup can be used as a bowl all backpacking food. You can pretty much put an accompanied it one way or another so I think people around mealtime realize like wow you really can't go minimal. You know you don't need to play and a bowl and a cup to get a lot of experience man. What is her suggestions when it comes to gear I think there's a common misconception that I'm you know the gear industry is in the outdoor? Industry is into selling stuff just like everybody else I love Patagonia's. philosophy is like us what you have is it until it's it's worn out and if you can't repair it then it's time the new one but let's protect our environment and I think I in keeping with a and and the the spirit of girl in her dog which is just get out there. You know you don't need the four hundred dollar sleeping bag. You don't need the six hundred dollar tent. You don't need a fancy pot in the beginning. Just go just start going get out there. That's what it's about and then as as things break maybe replace it look into finds that piece of gear that works for you and you know slowly build your system that way but everybody has something that you can borrow you know and odds are if you're going own with group somebody else is going to have a stove. Somebody else is going to have a filtration system or some drops or something like that. My old dog wouldn't be used to go backpacking. He was very shy and I'd you have to drag him into the tent scared of the tent and then eventually and I when I when he and I would go. I have a one I call it. My single eighty tent my one woman tent. which is it's very very small? It's a minimalist tarp tent that I use my polls of supports and I would drag him in and it'll be snuggle which he hated and that was in his rookie two years and then towards the end of his life he could not wait for the tent to be pitched and I swear that dog had he was here snob he he knew which sleeping bag like had the most loft and who had brought like the eight hundred fell down and who had brought the six hundred down and he would just gravitate towards the warmest Kodiak sleeping bag and he was just hilarious he used to wear a down jacket to sleep in so that he wouldn't climb on top of me when he got cold and and I'd pull that thing out and he just client into it on those snowy mountain trips and be like yes. I'm in my I'm in my sleeping bag so where is a girl and her dog now yet she didn't well she hinted at it and then she said it a few times in the interview but it sounds like the original dog has died so she actually has a new dog and it sounds like a new beginning combing my original hiking buddy..

We're back to our normal schedule of yeah craziness forty five minutes. We'll see how this goes a fun time but yeah we are. I guess roughly flee in the middle of September reproaching what you would call the official start of October fest at very each year but just like. I don't know if people really know this but October. Fest doesn't just October at starts in middle September. She goes to sort of like the beginning week of October and we were reading reading up on this and basically they start fermenting their beer in March two and they roll the barrels out a during the month of September. That's how long it takes to get this. this this Marsden's in Morrison stallions regularly yeah. There's a lot of law law garing in preparation for sorry. I think a lot of brewers do say it. It's a bit of a complex style and you prepped for you. Get it ready and you have a lot of you have to have a lot of patience speaking of which which I have because my half of Isan just went in like a couple of weeks ago well so not that long ago we actually tried brewing a coal shabby so three talked about it. Yes and we didn't give you an update so here it is it. It didn't turn out well. The beer turned out ah fine but the problem is it. I did not know what it calls. Truly was walk. I have we did talk about it but honestly the process of making it. The law garing was the thing that kills he'll be. I don't have the equipment to properly lager a beer at fifty degrees while it ferments now I kinda do but back then oh cool down real quick but they're keeping their we don't have an attic or basement here telephone no no stupid earthquakes but yeah it's GonNa be. It's one of those beers that we discovered didn't turn out the way it was. We kind of drank. It initially and we're like yeah. This is clearly not cloyd did not look anything like a coach. It was more like a dirty coal ash and then eventually we decided you know what let's just call it a German style Ale yes yes in it tasted pretty good and shocker it's done we don't have anymore because we drank it all not in one sitting but it took some go to get it down there. Speaking of just discovering what we kind of forgot back into I wanted to ask you okay without happened to Bob from dusty bottoms okay few episodes ago so I I've heard a lot of comments on this from from listeners and what about not Bob Yeah. They WanNa know what happened to how did he. How how did Bob get lost? How long was he lost? How was he found all those things so I talked to Jeff dusty bottoms president literally literally sucked to him like literally talked to him and he explained to me that it from the perspective of Bob? This is Bob Story. Bob said that he just kind of flew past everyone on the trail. took a wrong turn got discombobulated. I think that in the story we do talk about that. and I didn't know this. He was out there for three days. I thought it was like overnight overnight in the story on the yeah. No it was three days when cylinder he tells was the story about actually taking refuge inside of bushes. Oh you're gonNA see one of those like one time Star Wars Ooh Lightsaber as you say want on. I want all you star wars. Fans Wonton must have Chinese food on your mind cut open a one time too and you can't crawl on it though so on on top of him crawling into a into some some brush to snuggle up with big foot. I guess to get away from the elements. It was snowing. He said he also drink his own urine. I don't no no no. I know to stay hydrated. Just that's our line. That's the story though I don't I that's from his perspective I again. That's more like a Coche. The certainly the odor is more likely probably the clarity to more likely preparing for a marathon. He was quite breakdown so he was found he didn't have any frostbite right. There was nothing that that required any medical attention he was fine. There was an aid station like two hundred thousand how you doing. I'm just drinking my piss. What are you doing here? Oh Oh that's yeah well hell man we need to revisit. The story talked to him about survival skills. Yes yeah on the trail actually go back to the place where he got lost. I guess yeah and we should do a taste test. Here's sorry for the jokes Muna. You want to get the show starting. Let's get the show started. She gets brutal no alcohol place so I can't take this much.

This is a great time to be a beer drinker for October fest. Initially we said let's go get a Polaner just based off what happened last episode. We absolutely love that it style of beer. You cannot go wrong with that. earning her MS also brought up last episode so he went to the mall. You went went to the store and we couldn't find neither one of these because he's sort of limit. Our choices places that we went disappointed. We kind of took off in shifted around the day. It was kind kind of odd but anyway we came up with things like there's there was Sam Adams in the store. There were was named Casa Beer also has an October fest out now of course Nevada's approach their professors really neat how they partner with a German brewery a different one every year. This one is a bit burger order right yes but we also landed on a firestone Walker. I chose that they're from PASA Robles. The Beers called Oak Tober fest.

"I tso recently your you went to a beer making class Zach correct yeah yeah I did. I I went in. I signed up attended the Napa Valley College beer making class and I met James He's he's from Napa and well from it pretty much from as early as ten years old to evolving his taste buds as a high school senior sampling some Bass Ale James He's from Napa has always been interested in beer and food anchor steam was a good beer got turned onto Sierra Nevada. I try my first a beer with with Mir up in Oregon. That was a good hangover beer Baz. How do you start with Bass? I mean even even the before I it was a league legal drinking age. I think it was probably Bartlesville James. Oh that's right. I did have some bottles of lashed back. He just cracked open. Pandora's box ran well. I I remember having a twenty one club. which is you drank? Try Try to drink twenty-one cores lights in one night. Oh my bass that stuff that was too high end for me. I think my dad really enjoyed Newcastle Brown from his time in England but even then I think I looked etc nasty brown dark bear so at a young age. He's drinking this the Bass Ale House it getting his hands on this stuff. I don't know you'd mentioned that he's from Berkeley. Maybe there's a little high Falutin kind of society there but <hes> but he he clearly had that taste he had refined taste <hes> even back there. Actually I think you know always food beer. <hes> you know always appreciate try to be adventurous adventurous possible with both with both I had had a friend when I was in my twenties I think I my first experience was brewing back in the he was definitely early brewer and brewed with him a couple times and I thought it was pretty cool that you could make homebrew after being hooked it was time to turn into a mad beer scientist scientists signs background but it's <hes> you know I I I'm very are you interested in the science and kind of you know trying to figure out you know why certain things taste they do and you know the process and how you get from from eight to be or Z.. <hes> and <hes> you know I think the again another beer that I love is a planet the elder and so I think the second bureau brewed was that and again just by you know I think just sharing rates the following instructions said that the guy that famous brewer owner of <hes> Russian River Brewery Danny Kaye members last name actually. actually i think the he had done some interviews and <hes> published his his recipe and kind of all the steps you need to do it broke it down for a home brewer so it was kind of follow his instructions as closely as i could it came out really well i i think the first five or six beers were were all i think we're we're all pretty solid i even i think i did a guinness that turned out pretty well that was kind of interesting interesting you know again you try to find out as much information as possible there are things like you know it's got this hour flavor to it so how do you do that so <hes> you know some ways you do that you take take a guinness and you kind of leave it overnight or it takes him at a beer that you made any pulled out there for manner and you you at that sour and then you dump it back in <hes> kimber by kim of what i did but it was able to kind of get that sour flavor out of in i and and it worked out pretty well nice <hes> he went from bottling to kegs to building a keg greater and he kept adding till he hit his first obstacle i had one k. and then i brewed again and i wanted to put to kegs in there and by mistake i <hes> i left the valve open on one of the kegs and when i put the when i put the the the the this year too and the outlet on the other cake it it all the pressure backed up and it shot the beer into <hes> into the apparatus which i've some reason i can't i can't remember what it's called her now and and after that pretty much everything that i put in that at system for a year and a half two years just went bad super presser he began triaging this wound by systematically replacing his kit piece by piece and this turned one frustrating trading attempt into the next during that time it was pretty frustrating i almost <hes> you know kind of not that i gave up but i definitely had some you know sometimes wrote my god this is just spent you you know hundred dollars on materials and my whole weekend making this stuff and it it tastes like you know pretty much the worst beer you ever had her almost bike poison and <hes> so but you know you're stuck with it and i've been able to make a few years some some decent beers after that all right so james's new favorite beer what do you think what do you think is i would probably release is okay gimme gimme clues east coaster west coast neither ooh that's in the middle no not it's from another country you go wow <hes> well it's not it's not grosz oh but it sounds like oh it's it sounds like grow really whole coal shows yeah call coaches his new favorite style from cologne <hes> germany so i looked sucker up right it has a history dating back to the early sixteen hundreds it is like a logger process in there as well it's clear simple it's like a straw aw yellow hugh pills or malts james was telling me that takes about a month to clear a german style hops <hes> session beer of course he threw out there affected food is really good with us beer it almost enhances the taste but i found something about it it's a product with protected geographical indication so you can only brew it in a certain place yeah okay so yeah and so now you you've definitely definitely hitting hitting within the radar there buddy 'cause it it's you know it's a german beer they've they protect their beers very closely in their their don't mess with it don't do anything with in this case don't brew it outside fifty kilometers from <hes> clone so interesting stuff and the other thing too is served in a and i'm gonna mess this up it's an staunch <hes> stange stall straw it's s. t. a. n. g. e. look it up folks it's pretty cool i don't know if it's a fringy lay right on stone g._l._a. yes i it's it's really neat way of serving it like an a wreath breath circular christmas wreath type of goodness all the beers were sitting there and i messed it up if i try to explain it but serve go online check it out s. t. a. n. g. my saying that right s. t. n. g. e. <hes> and it's i've been to germany quite a few times i've never seen <hes> of course i don't think i've ever asked for coach while i'm there it's usually a vice beer but in this way i'm definitely going to go back in ask for for a serving of this stuff so it's not something that is that you can only get during certain time of the year this is all the time all the time okay three or four lupin i said christmas wreaths than he did i was off he has since tried his hand at wheats with banana notes but even with his renewed motivation and restored faith that he is capable of making beer life still is in charge i haven't brutalize lately i've only been probably bloom a couple of times a year just because kids job you know all that stuff sitting next to someone who has started with an idea and had his ups and downs and five years later he's attending a class to keep his dream alive i wanted to know what advice he had for me you know i think the first time he do it i mean you know obviously ask as much as you need to and and then you get as much as the right equipment <hes> you know i think the good thing is the first time that you brew you're not gonna have to worry about too much about your bureau committing infected i mean obviously sanitation is very important <hes> you know and and <hes> are the things like the star san <hes> you know solution to your obviously make sure that you sanitize everything that you do but you know that at least at first time hebrew you'd have to worry about your stuff getting it on across t- so i think just jump in and do it you know get your get actually the big thing is make sure they got a big enough pot and the first <hes> the first time i did it i wanted to do a five gallon batch and i bought a seven gallon you know pot and it wasn't it air kettle seven down kettle and it wasn't big enough so get yourself you're gonna do talent at least get yourself a ten gallon kettle <hes> you know make sure you've got <hes> you know a police <music> a dark cool place to to ferment yeah then just have fun so what's james doing today so we went through our class we brute a beer sure i think he got rejuvenated to the point where he's actually starting a new batch and cooling them out as he asked if we wanted to come to his house and watched him go through the process so i think that's going to be a future little feature.

"Yeah. I think it's going to be a podcast in the future well. I don't know about you. You have <hes> skiing <hes> <hes> background but me. I'm going to stick to my snow shoes. You're listening to live and sixteen ounces. What's in your pint all right well? Maybe something like this tough. Love might help you relax a little bit because right now we we're. We're we're approaching the end of this gigantic bottle of the Russian imperial stout and I agree with most of the stuff that we've gotten it's dark. It's rich. It's it's flavorful. Doesn't it's not a lot of alcohol even at eleven percent plus <hes>. I'm feeling comfortably numb. I think I would take another pint. If I was offered. Yeah I agree and <hes> this definitely is a winter winter is coming type of Ale and <hes> yeah it feels good. We drove up. I eighty. We took the big bend exit. <hes> there's also a large sign off of I eighty showcases. The Rainbow Lodge is also a ranger station sign on the side of the big bend exit sign which I almost missed actually well. It was a lot of snow up there. Certainly if you're if there's not a lot of snow you you're spot way easier. We're looking at six thousand to seven thousand foot put elevation area and what's what's great about. This spot is in the summertime is just as good you can easily just walk right into the trail in this in the wintertime your time you have to create a foothold in handhold area. We have to climb up over in this case eight to ten feet of snow and that was actually quite exciting citing. It was almost like like boom. You're adventure starts right now. We got over that that that that lip got onto the top of easily eight to ten feet plus snow and then started hiking in in the the infamous railroad tracks that was built through the Sierra Nevada's from Sacramento area all the way to Reno very famous in shows like hell on wheels and built certainly by the immigrants the Chinese immigrants the Irish immigrants cutting blasting lives lost this amazing. It's an ridiculous tragic yet amazing story of what they. You did in arduous conditions through the through the mountains and you can see it for yourself as it flows through these beautiful mountain passes through tunnels around Mountain Chris and Ridges as it's a beautiful thing to see so the other thing about the situation was we were also dealing with historic snow volumes as reported at at the end or middle of February four hundred twenty five inches which is like thirty six feet of snow has fallen around the castle peak area that by the way brandon was our initial location location of where he wanted to go. We got diverted. We had a storm that hit his head of time in a storm that hit his after we left I mean there was a window of small opportunity. We got in there did what needed to do but you were approaching. Maybe three to five inches of fresh snow within the last two days three to five inches of snow that we're going to hit his right as we were coming out as we headed back there my initial plan was I wanted to hit the railroad tracks or beyond and we're talking about two to three to four four miles. It's not much but in snow shoes it can be a lot for somebody who's never done it before like our friend Vince it's it's a lot the ultimate thing was we wanted to get out there. Try Our equipment out again. Knock off the breast. It's been a while since we're going out there. My thing was I had this caller party tent and I really wanted to try that out so Martha and I we got out there and we did our thing found a spot we built our camp and shaped. If you will where we everyone the party camp to be wherever he wanted to actually settle for the night and then of course we waited for Brandon and Vince Brandon brought Vince and of course take it from here for me. It was extremely easy to go ahead and <hes> traverse the trail that Paul had put in front of us for events. I completely different story for him on snow shoes for for the first time he had to go ahead and to learn how to use this way of travel. It's just <hes> it's exhausting. It's exhausting and it's a little debilitating on the body but if you again some of you know the the the endurance that I thought that I had in you know from just running and everything kinda helped it helped but by no it didn't it didn't make it easier once we had set up the equipment and we had gotten into the pardon tea party tent for the late evening. This is one vince head to say okay so I would honestly say incoming from a running perspective active. I guess so from somebody that has <hes> that already has <hes> endurance behind him is it's it's honestly it's trekking into so realizing the weight and the resistance with snow <hes> literally kind of sent me in a in a whole new direction as far as endurance. It's nothing like <hes> obviously running. You have really no obstacles. This is <hes> going either like either ascending or descending up and down mountain areas trying to find like soft spots and like shallow spots certainly give them a bit of a disclaimer brandon the first of all he's borrowing snow shoes <hes> second of all we're we're in a we're in a very interesting timeframe of of of the weather here in California to be able to have this type of snowfall. <hes> this early in the year is absolutely exceptional. We're this is something that we've always wanted. We talk about you know eight ten years of drought <hes> we had a crazy amount of snow that came in in two thousand seventeen. I believe then we kind of went dry last last year but now we're back to that. You know let's say a hundred and fifty three percent snow pack. This is going to balloon up most water reservoirs in the area. There is report that <hes> in this is crazy that reported in inches and not feet and inches but four hundred and twenty five inches of snow has fallen in this area certainly the castle peak area which is where we were heading before. We got diverted to this location because of parking situations that has only four hundred twenty five inches has fallen just since the beginning of February so to take somebody out for the first time in this thick fairly wet compact hacked snow is insane. It's it's it's Orient Challenge even for myself. You're going to sink in without a pack. I recall at least thinking about about four five inches. You put a pack on and there's certain spots that you go down at least six to seven inches and then and then what really blows everyone's mind. Is You take those suckers off and you walk around you. Drop up to your knee your thigh and it's that's when the real real true ability of what snowshoes can do for you yeah. That's true what on your body felt different with snowshoes on as opposed to you doing skiing's or anything else that you've done in the snow before due to the weight of the bag I'd say primarily because of the way to the bag and and the the working of like around like the hips like the hips and that that region it just <hes> it put a strain on the bag itself. Put the strain on shoulders but that's that's all here nor there. I'd say because that's just like that's an addition to your body because obviously needing all the gear but it's really it's. It's like bodily. It's the hips. The hips were wet. Everything else was pretty much solid as far as in you know you know wear and everything like quads and all that kind of stuff but the hitman that and that starts working on you when you snowshoeing the the idea that you're going to go out in the beginning of the year as fresh snow's falling and then I'm talking like two three four five ten fifteen twenty twenty five inches of snow fresh snow very difficult to snowshoeing you step in there and you're going to sync up to your knees. It's not consolidated enough. What you WANNA do is as people obviously who have the ability and the money is to back country ski at that point because your skis we'll float on top of that stuff? You have a lot more flotation area and then you can skin up down and what you need to do to go in the back country. That's the plus of of ability Nellie have have some money but have the fourth foresight to know what you need at that time and the ability to go out and buy it trust me. It's it's mind boggling to be able to have that ability to have that equipment and do building. Go where Oh you want to go with the right year. I have never done any of this before I mean I've tracked and snow but I mean I- snowboarded I've Snow skied. I've been at some other higher elevation areas as far as with snow but I mean literally walking starting out from a base point with especially with the with the with the snow shoes is just absolutely knew what you need to do for snowshoes is waiting to that snow consolidates as as as the Sun comes out as a blue bird days happen it it melts a liberal snow. The snow starts to melt it crushes it crushes it crushes over days period and I it squeezes that snow together to the point where you're gonNA get solid well. It's more solid snow where you can actually stay on top of it certainly with a with a snowshoe yet more flotation and you won't sneak up sync up to your knees. Maybe you sink up to your middle calf or you sink up to your ankles. That's when you had that consolidation in process and that's where snowshoes come into play and that's when the fun happens man you can go up and down every single angle steepness trail at one point time you can even three can run down than hills. It's amazing for this his trip. We had plenty of gear that we brought with US plenty of stoves plenty of things to to to stay warm lots of trips in the past <hes> to R._e._I.. to Go ahead and to really get US ready for this one even this time around to make sure that we had everything that we were going to need to be successful in this weather as you can hear in the background we have a train going by. We are that close to train tracks up in this area <hes> near the lakes. We've heard coyotes sound that you hear now would be a gas stove that is lighting a party tents that looks like.
